Justin the First
An Introduction to the Epoch of Justinian the Great
A. A. Vasiliev

“Although Professor Vasiliev does not state his aim in precisely these terms, his Justin I should really be regarded as a contribution towards a more integrated view of the history of the East Roman Empire in the sixth and seventh centuries. . . [He] sets out to stress the continuity between the reigns of Justin I and Justinian I, and he goes so far as to attribute to the nephew almost complete control of policy from 518 onwards.” Joan Hussey, The English Historical Review
